Possibly. They don't fail THAT often, and I think non-rebuildable
failures are rare? I'd say if you can find a used one inexpensively
(the pump is 20v specific...I think?), grab it, order the bits
necessary for rebuild, and take your time rebuilding it. Swap it in
when it is good to go, and if the rebuilt unit leaks like a sieve,
you've got the old one to drop back in while you continue to fuss
with the "new" unit.
Then take the original one, rebuild it, sell it to another lister or
on ebay, or keep it as a spare for "the next time"?
